2015 49¢ Ingrid Bergman

Legends of Hollywood

 

As a young child, Ingrid Bergman (1915-82) was encouraged to pursue the arts.  She appeared as a film extra in her teens and studied theater in her native Sweden.  It was not long before Bergman landed her first speaking role in a movie and her career took off.  While starring in the Swedish film Intermezzo, Bergman was discovered by American film producer David Selznick.  He purchased the rights to remake the film in the U.S., casting Bergman in the starring role.  

 

Early in her Hollywood career, Bergman portrayed “good girls,” a persona easily loved by the public.  Eager to prove her range as an actress, she sought different character roles, performing them to widespread acclaim.  Her performances in For Whom the Bell Tolls and Casablanca solidified her star status.  But Bergman’s well-publicized marriage to Italian director Roberto Rossellini caused a sharp departure in her career.  By moving to Italy, she lost contact with the American film industry and her fans for six years.  However, when she returned to Hollywood, her career quickly rejuvenated.   

 

Over four decades, Bergman performed on both stage and screen, amassing four Golden Globes, three Academy Awards, two Emmys, and a Tony.  She acted in over 50 films in five different languages.  Ingrid Bergman is, and forever will be, remembered as one of the most accomplished actresses of the 20th century.          

 

U.S. #5012 features a 1940 photo of Ingrid Bergman taken by Laszlo Willinger.  Kristen Monthei then digitally colorized the photo for the stamp.  Monthei also colorized the photo for the sheet’s selvage, which is taken from the film Casablanca.
